Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury stations and turns retrograde today, dear Aries, and some of the new work or endeavors that you began recently could come up for review. Some delays are possible. Matters surrounding studies, transportation, and essential communications can involve some confusion or backtracking. Vital information may be missed or is not yet available. Through delays or mishaps, you might discover new ways to express yourself that wouldn’t have come to mind otherwise. In fact, this retrograde is a powerful time for reviewing and revising work already in progress. With the shift occurring now, aim to watch for expressing yourself prematurely about a matter or saying things you don’t truly mean. Until June 22nd, decision-making may not always be straightforward as you search within for answers and need more time to draw conclusions. Try your best not to focus on flaws and problems, and this can be a rewarding period when revisiting past projects or subjects of study can be satisfying.
TaurusMercury turns retrograde today, dear Taurus, and this shift can create a heavier atmosphere in which communications are taken a little more seriously and not necessarily correctly. It’s temporary, but in the weeks ahead, while Mercury is retrograde, there can be some delays to manage. You could deal with more clerical problems than usual, misunderstandings, and a lack of clear messages coming through during this cycle that lasts until June 22nd. You may need to review financial matters. This is not the ideal time for making entirely new large purchases. Watch for fuzzy or wishful thinking, especially regarding practical affairs. Aim to come at old problems from a new direction or perspective and open your mind to new ways of thinking and approaches. It’s a period for looking to the past for answers to current problems or delaying some matters while you make changes and refinements. The Moon moves in harmony with your sign today, and it’s not only about escaping the ordinary, but it’s about expanding your experiences. Differences in opinion may figure strongly now, but you might decide to take things slowly.
GeminiYour ruler, Mercury, stations and turns retrograde today, dear Gemini. It’s best not to push anything forward for now, as it will likely get off to a slow start, or you might reconsider it later. Because this retrograde occurs in your sign, it can feel a little more personal than usual. Others may not understand you as readily, and you would be wise to take a little extra time making sure you’re clear in your communications. Decision-making turns inward during this cycle that lasts until June 22nd, and intuition tends to reign over pure logic. Today, watch that you don’t put faith in what someone tells you and consider that you might entirely misread a situation. Try not to take things too seriously today by lifting yourself above petty matters to focus on what truly matters. It’s a time of a little more introspection, and you will benefit greatly from this. Try not to push topics today, especially with the Moon opposite Mars in addition to Mercury’s station. It’s all too easy to find yourself at cross purposes with someone.
CancerToday can be a little tricky in certain areas, dear Cancer, mainly due to possible communication breakdowns and misunderstandings or problems with transportation. People in your life, in general, require a little more care and sensitivity right now, as there can be some misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Mercury stations retrograde today, and in the weeks ahead, there can be some delays or rethinking of matters. For you, trusting your instincts may not be as straightforward. Decision-making can be problematic in the next while, as you play with different possibilities. You can quite easily put your foot in your mouth or reveal something that you’d prefer to remain hidden. However, it’s a good cycle for redoing and refining work already underway and backtracking over the past to find answers that you previously overlooked. Mercury will move in retrograde motion until June 22nd. Today’s Moon stimulates a strong need for companionship, but others can arouse defensiveness in you early today.
LeoCommunications can be tricky all day with Mercury stationing retrograde later today, dear Leo. This begins a cycle, lasting until June 22nd, in which it’s especially favorable to look to the past, make refinements and edits to projects, and rethink problems from a different perspective. However, with the shift happening now, there can be some chaos to deal with today and tomorrow revolving around communications that are misunderstood, lost, or overlooked. Mercury’s retrograde occurs in your friends and dreams sector in the weeks ahead, emphasizing your communications with associates, groups, and friends. It also is a time for the hatching of ideas for the future, but watch for missing information or fuzzy thinking. You might aim to be more alert than usual when dealing with friends, associates, and groups, as well as business income. An old friend may figure strongly in your life during this cycle. Today, consider that you (and most others) are not seeing the complete picture of a matter clearly, so it’s better to reserve judgment.
VirgoYour ruler, Mercury, stations as it turns retrograde today, dear Virgo. This cycle can be beneficial for going over in-progress projects and discovering new ways of looking at old problems. Still, with the station happening now, a bit of chaos is possible, particularly on a professional level or with business matters. Aim to be clear in your communications, and consider that plans drawn up today may never come to pass. Mercury is retrograde until June 22nd, and for you, it occurs in your career and reputation sector, and you may experience more than usual delays or confusion on the job. Matters from your past might be rehashed or recycled and circulated. You can experience some delays in career projects. However, this cycle is strong for refining projects already underway and very helpful for turning your attention to issues you might normally overlook. It can be a super period for looking to the past for answers on how to manage current responsibilities, as well as for observing trends and reconsidering past plans and projects.
LibraIt’s best to be careful with how you express yourself through both the written and spoken word today, dear Libra. The Moon opposes Mars and Mercury stations retrograde. Aim to be clear in your communications, as misunderstandings are possible now. You might prefer to save significant discussions for a time when people are less touchy and when you’re clearer. Mercury’s retrograde runs until June 22nd and occurs in your adventure and learning sector. In the next while, and particularly today and tomorrow, check your facts before expressing your opinions too forcefully. There can be issues with higher education, travel, or publishing. It’s strong for reviewing your belief system and personal philosophy, working on writing or publishing projects already underway, and returning to studies on hold. The Moon’s transit of your home and family sector suggests that you need some extra reassurance or security before pushing forward.
ScorpioMercury stations and turns retrograde today, dear Scorpio, and it would be wise to be clear with instructions or formal conversations now. Watch also that you don’t neglect or overlook critical financial details. It’s better not to lend someone something if you want it to get back to you without a hassle. This cycle occurs in your intimacy sector, and until June 22nd, aim to double-check financial matters, especially those shared with others, as well as debts and loans. All may not be as they appear at first glance. You are challenged to be more vigilant with these matters and dealings, and this can be especially so today and tomorrow as the shift occurs. Rushing through your tasks leads to mistakes and disagreements, so aim to pace yourself. However, the cycle ahead of you is good for reviewing, budgeting, and getting a different perspective on your intimate relationships and your inner workings.
SagittariusMercury stations and turns retrograde today, dear Sagittarius. You may want to be a little more aware of what you’re saying or how you’re saying it as the shift occurs since misunderstandings are likely. It’s best not to take it for granted that others will understand you, even with people who usually get you. Mercury is your partnership ruler and is also transiting that same sector, emphasizing your close relationships. You may be dealing with a confusing past relationship issue during this cycle that lasts until June 22nd. Try not to focus on the words chosen to express ideas, and instead zero in on the intention behind the words. Consider that delays can help you to understand your situation, ultimately! Past people and issues can re-emerge. Today, comfort needs assume special importance.
CapricornWith Mercury stationing and turning retrograde today, dear Capricorn, paying extra attention to your communications is a good idea. There may be some delays to deal with now. This retrograde occurs in your work and health sector and runs until June 22nd. Old problems at work can resurface, and projects that you thought were complete may need some reworking over the next while. Today, be extra careful about what you are committing to or communicating. Once past this shift, however, there is good energy for working on refining and editing projects. This cycle may sway your thinking and change your mind about recent decisions, but it can also reveal details you previously overlooked. You might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. At times today, you might feel that others are standing in your way or opposing your plans.
AquariusMercury stations and turns retrograde today, dear Aquarius, making it a time to slow down, take stock, and review in-progress projects. In the coming weeks, there can be a need to reconsider some decisions you’ve recently made. Communication breakdowns are possible today and tomorrow as the shift occurs. Mercury’s retrograde in your sector of romance and creativity will last until June 22nd, and people or problems from the past tend to resurface or become a mental focus. This cycle may bring some fogginess in these life departments, but it’s also a chance to tap into a different perspective. It’s a good time to revisit old creative projects or ideas that you didn’t have time to pursue or complete. It’s all too easy to get our wires crossed today, and it’s best not to overload your schedule or tackle tricky topics for now.
PiscesMercury stations and turns retrograde today, dear Pisces, and the cycle ahead can help you to see certain areas of your life from an entirely different perspective. Communication with family may not be as straightforward as you’d like, or there can be some level of chaos or mechanical problems around the home that require your attention. Past issues can resurface for review until June 22nd. It may be best to save brand new initiatives surrounding home and property for a later time, but reworking and reorganizing your home can be especially fruitful now. With the shift occurring now, you might deal with little things going wrong or misunderstandings. Be especially clear if it’s essential to get your message across.
